Soon hopefully, but I've got one of those flat-peaked cap wearing ones so who knows

Comes from the Land rover clubs in UK... nitpicky pratts that will go totally off the deep end if they suspect that an old land rover has been put together/restored with the incorrect number of rivets... etc... much like the small group of BMW "rivet counters" on this forum that anally go after any car that is not OEM (in their absolute opinions of course!)

Ahh, right, gotcha. I must remember this saying when I am about to start counting the rivets on something.... in my defence it is usually when someone says "totally original" or "un-modified collectors car" when it has clearly been changed. if that helps.

Which takes us into another part of this subject - the modfied E30s, whilst there are collectors of M3s, M325is, Alpinas, etc. I am not so sure the very low Kms poverty spec 318i Autos that come up can be advertised for very high prices as they are "collectors cars", on the other hand does an engine swap or other mods increase the value of an E30 over factory?

A lot would depend on the quality of the work done, and how well it has been finished off, but everything else on the car being equal, would an E30 with a 2.5 24v swap be worth more / less than a factory 325i?

This is a sad situation, that car belonged to a member of one of the e30 Facebook pages and had it stolen for the rims 😓😓

Damn. Still doesn't make sense why anyone would try to sell (guessing insurance company in this case) or buy this thing. You'd have to pay to some to take it.

Where does a 318is fit into all of this? Customer of mine is flirting with the idea of selling it, NZ New 100kms and immaculate condition. I suggested around the 20k mark but interested to hear others opinions

Yeah, that really sucks. I guess they took the whole car to take the rims off somewhere else and then torched it to get rid of any fingerprints, etc.

That really is a scumbag thing to do, you never mess with a man's wheels.

All that pain and aggravtion through destroying someone's pride and joy to take a couple of grands worth of wheels and tyres so you can sell them for a couple of hundred. Should be a death penalty for that kind of sh*t.

Yup, the 318is would certainly fit into the collectors category and would be well up there in terms of desirability. With the NZ New, low kms combo, and great condition I would think your estimate is in the right place - might take a while to find the right buyer, but certainly do-able.

20k minimum with those kms and if it's totally original.

Zee had one that needed light restoration that sold a number of months ago for approximately 15-16k, so around $20k wouldn’t seem out of the question. There was only ever 24 brought into New Zealand new as far as I’m aware.
